In 1999, while with the City of Atlanta Bureau of Planning, TSW principal Caleb Racicot managed and prepared the East Atlanta Village Study, which called for revitalizing this historic intown neighborhood commercial node via streetscape improvements, shared parking strategies, a new library, and improved marketing. Since the Study was completed, several of its major recommendations have been implemented, including: rezoning the district to Neighborhood Commercial, legalizing shared parking arrangements, a new library (which opened in early July 2005) and preparation of a streetscape master plan, completed by TSW in 2003.
Today the transformation of East Atlanta continues to implement the Study’s vision. After five months of streetscape construction, East Atlanta Village had a grand “re-opening” on Saturday, July 30 from noon until 7 p.m. Read complete coverage in The Story, “East Atlanta boasts new streets and great eats.”
